VON DIAZ Cocina criolla with contemporary southern flair “Diaz stirs together the right amount of memoir with a hefty sprinkling of delightful recipes. A delicious read that will both touch you deeply and inspire you all the way to your kitchen.”—Sandra A.

When her family moved from Puerto Rico to Atlanta, Von Diaz traded plantains, roast pork, and Malta for grits, fried chicken, and sweet tea. Brimming with humor and nostalgia, Coconuts and Collards is a recipe-packed memoir of growing up Latina in the Deep South. The stories center on the women in Diaz’s family who have used food to nourish and care for one another. Inspired by her grandmother’s 1962 copy of Cocina Criolla—the Puerto Rican equivalent of Joy of Cooking—Diaz celebrates traditional recipes while fusing them with her own family history and a contemporary southern flair. Diaz’s funche recipe is grits kicked up with coconut milk. White beans make the catfish corn chowder creamy and give it a Spanish feel. The pinchos de pollo—chicken skewers— feature guava BBQ sauce, which doubles as the sauce for adobo-coated ribs. Diaz innovates for modern palates, updating and lightening recipes and offering vegetarian alternatives. For the chayotes rellenos (stuffed squash), she suggests replacing the picadillo (sautéed ground beef ) with seitan or tofu. She offers alternatives for difficult-to-find ingredients, like substituting potatoes for yucca and yautía—root vegetables typically paired with a meat to make sancocho. Diaz’s version of this hearty stew features chicken and lean pork. And because every good Puerto Rican meal ends with drinks, desserts, and dancing, Diaz includes recipes for besitos de coco (coconut kisses), rum cake, sofrito bloody marys, and anticuado, an old-fashioned made with rum. With stunning photographs that showcase the geographic diversity of the island and the vibrant ingredients that make up Puerto Rican cuisine, this cookbook is a moving story about discovering our roots through the foods that comfort us. It is about the foods that remind us of family and help us bridge childhood and adulthood, island and mainland, birthplace and adopted home.
VON DIAZ is a writer and radio producer based in New York. Her work has been featured on NPR, American Public Media, StoryCorps, WNYC, The Splendid Table, PRI’s The World, The Kitchn, and BuzzFeed.

Voices from Mariel Oral Histories of the 1980 Cuban Boatlift
JOSÉ MANUEL GARCÍA A mass exodus that shocked the world “Powerful and gripping reading. It captures vividly the denigrating, dangerous, and harrowing experiences that a human being will endure in the pursuit of freedom.”—Yvonne M. Conde, author of Operation Pedro Pan: The Untold Exodus of 14,048 Cuban Children “The exodus of Cubans after the Castro revolution is one of the largest, and at times, most dramatic epics in human history. Voices from Mariel provides a vivid and accurate record of a major migration episode in the Cuban experience.” —Jaime Suchlicki, author of Cuba: From Columbus to Castro and Beyond Between April and September 1980, more than 125,000 Cuban refugees fled their homeland, seeking freedom from Fidel Castro’s dictatorship. They departed in boats from the Port of Mariel and braved the dangerous 90-mile journey across the Straits of Florida. Told in the words of the immigrants themselves, the stories in Voices from Mariel offer an up-close view of this international crisis, the largest oversea mass migration in Latin American history. Former refugees describe what it was like to gather among thousands of dissidents on the grounds of the Peruvian embassy in Cuba, where the movement first began. They were abused by the masses who protested them as they made their way to the Mariel harbor before they were finally permitted to leave the country by Castro in an attempt to disperse the civil unrest. They waited interminably for boats in oppressive heat, squalor, and desperation at the crowded tent camp known as “El Mosquito.” They embarked on vessels overloaded with too many passengers and battled harrowing storms on their journeys across the open ocean. Author José Manuel García, who emigrated on the Mariel boatlift as a teenager, describes the events that led to the exodus and explains why so many Cubans wanted to leave the island. The shockingly high numbers of refugees who came through immigration centers in Key West, Miami, and other parts of the United States was a message—loud and clear—to the world of the people’s discontent with Castro’s government and the unfulfilled promises of the Cuban Revolution. Based on the award-winning documentary of the same name, Voices from Mariel features the experiences of Marielitos from all walks of life. These are stories of disappointed dreams, love for family and country, and hope for a better future. This book illuminates a powerful moment in history that will continue to be felt in Cuba and the United States for generations to come.

Discover how one spectacular building project transformed Miami from a fractious tropical city to a cultural capital of the Americas. In Center of Dreams, New York Times bestselling author Les Standiford tells the inspiring story of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. The vision for this building, which would become the most ambitious cultural arts complex since the Kennedy Center, began in an unlikely place and time. Miami in the 1970s was divided by social and ethnic tensions. The city held a growing population of immigrants from the Cuban revolution, a well-established African American community, Florida “crackers,” and a continual influx of tourists and retirees. Critics said a cultural center would never be possible in a place of such extreme diversity. But Parker Thomson, a lawyer and Boston transplant, dreamed that his adopted city would become a world-leading community in the twenty-first century. He believed a performing arts center was critical to this vision. Persevering against political opposition, economic obstacles, and engineering problems, Thomson spent over 30 years making the dream a reality. With Thomson’s efforts, along with help from cultural leaders, iconic design work by architect Cesar Pelli, and support from philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, the project succeeded against all odds. Today the Arsht Center is a cutting-edge magnet of style and art. Presenting performances that celebrate the richness of Miami’s diverse population, it showcases emerging local artists and attracts international stars. Resident companies include the New World Symphony, the Florida Grand Opera, and the Miami City Ballet. Its improbable story is a testament to the influence of cultural advocacy, the importance of government support for the arts, and the power of the arts to repair and sustain communities.

Phil Gernhard, Record Man BILL DEYOUNG The eccentric and troubled life of a musical genius “Enigma, wunderkind, control freak, visionary, raconteur, artist advocate, shameless hustler and, in the end, kind heart, Gernhard spent four-and-a-half decades chasing recording art and blatant novelty with the same dogged determination. Gernhard’s achievements in the music business rival those of Rick Hall, Mike Curb, Phil Walden, and perhaps even Sam Phillips.”—Rodney Crowell “DeYoung hooks Phil Gernhard’s genius, discipline, and love of music right up to the side of his self-indulgent, carny, smarmy business practices. I had no idea what a huge swath of great work he’d cut, starting right in his own backyard.” —Stan Lynch “A great rock ’n’ roll story that’s been hiding in plain sight. It’s the last half century of American music wrapped up in the story of one man.”—William McKeen, author of Everybody Had an Ocean: Music and Mayhem in 1960s Los Angeles

A go-getting, red-headed college kid eager to break into the music business, Phil Gernhard produced a handful of singles for South Carolina doo-wop group Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs. One of these songs, “Stay,” reached number one on the charts in 1960. Gernhard was just 19 years old. Phil Gernhard, Record Man is the story of a self-made music mogul who created nearly fifty years’ worth of chart-topping songs. From a tiny office and studio in Florida, he co-wrote the Royal Guardsmen’s “Snoopy vs. the Red Baron,” America’s fastest-selling single of 1966. He revived the career of singer Dion DiMucci with the ballad “Abraham, Martin and John”—a million seller. He discovered and produced hit records for Lobo, Jim Stafford, and the Bellamy Brothers. Through a long collaboration with music business icon Mike Curb, he launched to fame many others, including country superstars Tim McGraw and Rodney Atkins. In Nashville and Los Angeles, Phil Gernhard was a legend. Yet Gernhard’s private life was crumbling. He battled physical and emotional demons that he simply couldn’t overcome, struggling with alcoholism, drug addiction, and a bad past with his father. He filed for his fourth divorce just months before taking his own life in 2008. Through interviews with Gernhard’s musicians, business partners, family members, and ex-wives, Bill DeYoung offers an intimate portrait of a brilliant yet troubled man who channeled his talent, ego, and ambition into the success of others. A true “record man,” Gernhard did it all. He lived to make records into gold, to make unknowns into stars, and above all, to make music.
BILL DEYOUNG is the author of Skyway: The True Story of Tampa Bay’s Signature Bridge and the Man Who Brought It Down. Nationally recognized for his music journalism, he was a writer and editor at various Florida and Georgia newspapers for over three decades.

In Season Stories of Discovery, Loss, Home, and Places In Between
Edited by JIM ROSS Twenty-one writers on the state that changed their lives “In Season invites readers to experience magic in unexpected places. These essays are heartfelt and heartbreaking, incisive and celebratory and funny. They capture the wild and rollicking heart of a state that’s changing faster than any other.” —Ana Maria Spagna, author of Reclaimers “Smart, provocative, vivid, and lively, these essays suggest that ‘sense of place’ is crucial context for one’s sense of self and exerts not only inescapable influence on the surrounding culture but on the human imagination as well.”—Marianne Gingher, editor of Amazing Place: What North Carolina Means to Writers “Stunning. Unveils a richer, often less pretty Florida, where various kinds of garishness complicate the natural beauty, the warmth and sunshine, the turquoise waters and white sands, the pinks and pastels, that draw people here.”—Willard Spiegelman, author of Senior Moments: Looking Back, Looking Ahead

First-time travelers to Florida often imagine the state as just a vacationland or a swamp—a place to visit and to leave behind. But the writers in this collection discover the truth that everyone who’s lived in the state knows. When you venture into Florida you won’t find what you expect, and what you do find will stay with you forever. The authors of these essays come to Florida for different reasons. Love, fortune, family, rest, natural beauty, or a fresh start. They encounter a place so diverse that it defies easy categorization. Lauren Groff describes her experience settling in Florida after growing up in the Northeast and finds an affinity with the strong-willed writer Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, who grew to resent the cities of her past and embraced the wild lands that inspired The Yearling. Cuban-born Susannah Rodríguez Drissi travels to Miami and learns what the city does and doesn’t mean for Cuban Americans. Deesha Philyaw comes to the state to care for her mother, who is dying of cancer. Rick Bragg seeks out the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico and writes about how it was threatened by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. In these stories, Florida is more than a setting—it’s a character of its own. It stirs up hurricanes and rainstorms, enchants with natural springs and cypress forests, and endures in the face of pollution. For all of these writers, Florida is a force that brings about moments of personal insight and growth, a place where hard lessons are learned and true joy is experienced. Their essays illustrate that the places we inhabit put a stamp on us, even if we only call them home for a season.

Son of Real Florida Stories from My Life
JEFF KLINKENBERG A heartfelt tribute to the true Florida “Nobody writes about the real Florida with as much insight and affection as Jeff Klinkenberg. His essays—spanning the length and breadth of this intoxicating, infuriating state—are pure gems.”—Carl Hiaasen “An authentic take on the most mysterious, confounding, and beautiful state. Klinkenberg’s gotten to the heart and soul of Florida, and the sincerity, love, and compassion that comes through in these stories kept me turning pages.” —Michael Connelly “Deeply personal and often moving, rich in color and atmosphere, this collection is not just a love letter to the Sunshine State; it’s a paean to family, memories good and bad, and a life lived well in a wild, gorgeous, often misunderstood place.” —Lisa Unger As stories about “Florida Man” inspire wild headlines in the news, Florida’s most beloved chronicler is here to show that the state is more than the stereotypes. Award-winning journalist Jeff Klinkenberg has explored what makes Florida unique for nearly half a century, and Son of Real Florida is a compelling retrospective of essays on the state he knows so well. Klinkenberg tells what it was like growing up in pre–air conditioning Florida and becoming a newspaper reporter in mid-century Miami. He introduces us to the stout-hearted folks who have learned to live and even prosper among the insects, sharp-toothed critters, and serious heat. We meet beekeeper Harold P. Curtis and his prized orange blossom honey; frog whisperer Avalon Theisen; Sheepshead George of St. Petersburg; and Miss Martha, the oyster-shucking queen of Apalachicola. This book also takes us to some of the most interesting, little-known places in the state. We travel to Solomon’s Castle of reclaimed materials, the neighborhood of “Rattlesnake, Florida,” and the smallest post office in the United States. Along the way, Klinkenberg stops to impart true Florida wisdom, from how to eat a Key lime pie to which writers and artists every Floridian should know. Above all, Klinkenberg portrays Florida’s people, places, food, and culture with a deep understanding that does not relegate them to cliché. He writes with warmth and authenticity of a state he still sees as wondrous in its own ways. Though some may think the real Florida is a thing of the past, he says, “Do not tell me Florida is no longer a paradise.”

GINNY STIBOLT, a freelance writer, botanist, and experienced gardener, is the author of The Art of Maintaining a Florida Native Landscape and Sustainable Gardening for Florida and coauthor of Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida. MARJORIE SHROPSHIRE, a visual artist whose work is deeply concerned with the conservation of Florida’s natural areas, is the editor of Palmetto, the magazine of the Florida Native Plant Society.
More and more Florida residents are deciding to replace highly fertilized, over-watered, pesticide-dependent lawns with native plants. They want to reduce their carbon footprints; save time, water, and money; and attract birds and butterflies. But where to begin? This illustrated guide helps readers get started creating new outdoor spaces that are both sustainable and beautiful. Taking the common 1/3-acre lot as an example, Ginny Stibolt and Marjorie Shropshire provide a sample layout for a basic native plant landscape. They use a grid system that allows gardeners to work on their yards in small sections instead of trying to revamp the entire landscape at once. And they break down the process into individual steps, making it manageable even for beginners. The first step is assessing your property and choosing which plants to keep and which to remove. Next, the book discusses how to handle rainwater, introduce trees, install a butterfly garden, use native plants as screening, make an outdoor “room” for entertaining, build wild areas into the landscape, and plan a smart maintenance program that relies on certain plants to keep boundaries neat and incorporates natural weed control. By following these methods, anyone can convert all or part of their yard into a more natural area without using pesticides or artificial fertilizers, which will save money and help support wildlife. Complete with detailed diagrams and lists of suggested plants for each step, this guide will help readers set up an environmentally friendly habitat and give them the time and peace of mind to enjoy it.

The Annotated Old Fourlegs The Updated Story of the Coelacanth
MIKE BRUTON The latest episode in the greatest fish discovery ever made
“The appearance of the Coelacanth was like a gigantic tidal wave which washed me violently from my path, held me in its grip, carried me along, and set my feet on a quest that dominated some of the best years of my life.”—JLB Smith, Old Fourlegs: The Story of the Coelacanth When scientist JLB Smith published Old Fourlegs: The Story of the Coelacanth in 1956, he created an international sensation. A dramatic account of the discovery of a creature thought to have been extinct for 65 million years, the book brought science into the living rooms of thousands. It was published in six English editions and translated into ten foreign languages. The Annotated Old Fourlegs brings this incredible story back to life for today’s readers. Smith’s famous account begins with the finding of a strange fish off the coast of South Africa by a local fisherman. As large as a person, the fish had fins like arms and vicious snapping jaws. Smith became certain that what had been caught was the legendary coelacanth, previously known only through fossils. The book follows Smith’s obsessive drive to track down other specimens and to learn more about this extraordinary fish that has lived on Earth from the era of the dinosaurs to modern times. The Annotated Old Fourlegs features a facsimile reprint of the original book with extensive margin notes, providing insights on JLB Smith, updates on coelacanth research, and comments on the coelacanth’s influence on contemporary culture. Mike Bruton, an ichthyologist who has dedicated his life to continuing the pioneering studies begun by Smith, provides a new introduction and concluding chapters that bring the coelacanth story up to date.

Dancing in Blackness A Memoir
HALIFU OSUMARE Foreword by Brenda Dixon Gottschild
“Finally someone who knows a dancer’s process and a choreographer’s vision that has tackled the mystery that is the magic of contemporary African American dance. In Dancing in Blackness, Halifu Osumare has extricated the fundamental influence of Dunham, the choreographic strategies of Rod Rodgers, Eleo Pomare, Chuck Davis, Donald McKayle, and Alvin Ailey, as well as illuminating the paths they created for Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Bill T. Jones, Garth Fagan, and Diane McIntyre. What a wealth of treasure and scholarly and aesthetic understanding Osumare brings to this often misunderstood and woefully neglected American art. Bravo!” —Ntozake Shange, author of for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf “Dancing in Blackness belongs on every dancer’s and artist’s shelf. It is a wonderful personal telling of the black experience in dance, in art, in life, and of the dance world in Boston, New York, and the whole Bay Area. It is beautifully written— an engaging and fact-filled narrative where you meet the choreographers of the period, their work and visions, trials, successes, and triumphs.”—Donald McKayle, choreographer of Rainbow Round My Shoulder

Dancing in Blackness is a professional dancer’s personal journey over four decades, across three continents and twenty-three countries, and through defining moments in the story of black dance in America. In this memoir, Halifu Osumare reflects on what blackness and dance have meant to her life and international career. Osumare’s story begins in 1960s San Francisco amid the Black Arts Movement, black militancy, and hippie counterculture. It was there, she says, that she chose dance as her own revolutionary statement. Osumare describes her experiences as a young black dancer in Europe teaching “jazz ballet” and establishing her own dance company in Copenhagen. Moving to New York City, she danced with the Rod Rodgers Dance Company and took part in integrating the programs at the Lincoln Center. After doing dance fieldwork in Ghana, Osumare returned to California and helped develop Oakland’s black dance scene. Osumare introduces readers to some of the major artistic movers and shakers she collaborated with throughout her career, including Katherine Dunham, Pearl Primus, Jean-Léon Destiné, and Donald McKayle. Now a black studies scholar, Osumare uses her extraordinary experiences to reveal the overlooked ways that dance has been a vital tool in the black struggle for recognition, justice, and self-empowerment. Her memoir is the inspiring story of an accomplished dance artist who has boldly developed and proclaimed her identity as a black woman.

Florida’s Lost Galleon The Emanuel Point Shipwreck
Edited by ROGER C. SMITH “This much-anticipated book gives us a thorough and extremely readable account of Tristán de Luna’s tragic expedition to Florida. It is also a fascinating story of how these long-lost shipwrecks are found and excavated.”—Kathleen Deagan, coauthor of Fort Mose “Exciting and gripping. This wonderful book tells the story of the ship, the people who built and sailed it, the time in which it was built, the exploration of the New World, and the dreams and hopes of the first Europeans to immigrate to the Americas.”—Filipe Vieira de Castro, author of The Pepper Wreck In 1559, Spanish explorer Tristán de Luna led a fleet of ships from Mexico to Pensacola Bay, Florida. His objective was to settle the Florida frontier for the Kingdom of Spain. But a hurricane struck soon after his arrival, destroying the small colony and sinking six of his ships. Few significant remains were uncovered for more than 400 years—until a ship was found underwater off Emanuel Point in modern-day Pensacola. Florida’s Lost Galleon documents this groundbreaking discovery, the earliest shipwreck found in Florida. Underwater archaeologists describe how they explored the ship’s hull and recorded it carefully in order to reconstruct the original vessel and its last mission. They take readers into the laboratory to explain how the waterlogged objects they uncovered were analyzed and prepared for public display. The story of the ill-fated colony unfolds as they discuss the surprisingly well-preserved Spanish colonial artifacts, including armor, ammunition, plant and animal remains, and wooden and metal tools. The excavation of the Emanuel Point shipwreck was driven by the enthusiasm and support of local volunteers, and this volume argues for the importance of such public archaeology projects. Florida’s Lost Galleon invites readers to experience the exciting world of marine archaeology as it opens up a forgotten chapter in American history. ROGER C. SMITH served as state underwater archaeologist for the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research for three decades. He is the author of Vanguard of Empire: Ships of Exploration in the Age of Columbus, The Maritime Heritage of the Cayman Islands, and coauthor of An Atlas of Maritime Florida.
The Remarkable Kinship of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Ellen Glasgow ASHLEY ANDREWS LEAR “Tackles the complex and fascinating relationship between Glasgow and Rawlings and demonstrates these writers’ influences on one another, both personally and professionally. This book is one we have needed for a long time.”—Pamela R. Matthews, editor of Perfect Companionship: Ellen Glasgow’s Selected Correspondence with Women “A richly detailed account of a significant literary kinship. A fascinating narrative.”—Peggy Whitman Prenshaw, author of Composing Selves: Southern Women and Autobiography In this book, Ashley Lear examines the relationship between two pioneers of American literature who broke the mold for women writers of their time. Pulitzer Prize–winning novelists Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Ellen Glasgow had divergent careers in different locations, Rawlings in backcountry Florida and Glasgow in urban Virginia, yet their correspondence on life and writing reveals one of the great literary friendships of the South. Rawlings felt such admiration for Glasgow that she spent the last year of her life compiling materials for Glasgow’s biography, a work she never completed. Lear draws on the documents Rawlings collected about Glasgow, Rawlings’s personal notes, and letters between the two writers to describe the experiences that brought them together. Lear shows that Rawlings and Glasgow shared a love of nature and social activism, had complex relationships with their parents and siblings, and prioritized their professional lives over romantic attachments. They were both classified as writers of regional works and juvenilia by critics, and Lear traces their discussions about how to respond to the opinions of book reviewers. Both were also forced to confront a new, quickly modernizing America, which at times clashed with their traditional values and naturalistic lifestyles. This is a fascinating portrait of a friendship that sustained two women writers in a time of social upheaval and changing norms in the American South. ASHLEY ANDREWS LEAR is associate professor of humanities at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Dirty Harry’s America
An Evidence-Based Approach
Clint Eastwood, Harry Callahan, and the Conservative Backlash
Edited by WENDY OLIVER and DOUG RISNER “Groundbreaking.”—Broadway World “A useful resource for future researchers interested in the ways that gender in dance intersects with class, race, and sexual orientation.”—Choice “Few volumes tackle the issue of gender and dance with such currency. A work of high quality, thorough in its composition, impeccable in its rigor, and far-reaching in its approach.” —Julie Kerr-Berry, Minnesota State University, Mankato “Generous with data, this collection of accessible research will inspire a variety of emotions from anger to fascination, prompting us to question our own actions and the shape of the future of dance.” —Barbara Bashaw, Rutgers University Driven by exacting methods and hard data, this volume reveals gender dynamics within the dance world in the twenty-first century. Through surveys, interviews, analyses of data from institutional sources, and action research studies, it provides concrete evidence about how gender impacts the daily lives of dancers, choreographers, directors, educators, and students. Dancers, dance artists, and dance scholars from the United States, Australia, and Canada discuss equity in three areas: concert dance, the studio, and higher education. They answer incisive questions about the role of gender in various aspects of the field, including physical expression and body image, classroom experiences and pedagogy, and performance and funding opportunities. The dance community can strive to eliminate discrimination, but the first step toward doing that is to understand the status quo regarding gender in the dance world. WENDY OLIVER, professor of dance at Providence College, is coeditor of Jazz Dance: A History of the Roots and Branches. DOUG RISNER, professor of dance at Wayne State University, is coeditor of Hybrid Lives of Teaching Artists in Dance and Theatre Arts: A Critical Reader.
JOE STREET “A scrupulously detailed study of the five Dirty Harry films . . . and their huge influence on other films, television shows, and literature.”—Choice “A detailed analysis of Callahan that could pave the way for historians to consider how culture, film, and politics are interwoven.”—H-Net “Street provides a crucial critical and cultural service by not only studying Eastwood’s individual films in sharp detail but also by providing a close and serious analysis of the cultural and historic times of the films.”—Sam B. Girgus, author of Clint Eastwood’s America “By far the most comprehensive, sustained, and detailed discussion of the Dirty Harry phenomenon. A thorough and engaging account of how a fictitious renegade cop became an enduring icon of the angry conservative backlash that sought to halt 1960s liberalism in its tracks.”—Nick Heffernan, author of Culture, Environment and Ecopolitics Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry became the prototype for a new kind of movie cop—an antihero in pursuit of his own vision of justice. In this book, Joe Street argues that the Dirty Harry movies shed critical light on the culture and politics of the post-1960s era, and he locates San Francisco as the symbolic cultural battleground of the time. Across the entire series, conservative anger and moral outrage confront elitist liberalism and moral relativism. Street maintains that the films themselves became active participants in the culture wars and that their legacy remains strong in American political discourse, cinema, and pop culture. JOE STREET is senior lecturer in American history at Northumbria University. He is the author of The Culture War in the Civil Rights Movement.

Shows how archaeology can help both academic and non-specialist readers to comprehend the lives of even the most unfortunate.”—Antiquity “Sets Irish archaeology on an exciting new course by tangibly proving the harshness of the famine and the workhouse system.”—Charles E.

In this first bioarchaeological study of Great Famine victims, Jonny Geber uses skeletal analysis to tell the story of how and why the Famine decimated the lowest levels of nineteenth-century Irish society.

“A powerful case in favor of the need for the identification and preservation of the places that played a role in one of the greatest achievements in history.” —Space Times “Details how various sites in New Mexico, Texas, California, and Florida contributed to the successful Apollo missions.”—USA Today “Explain[s] the necessity of preserving these sites for future generations, and the ways in which the launch facilities, test sites, and even lunar sites can be properly tended.”—Publishers Weekly “Explore[s] the archaeological perspective of preserving sites related to the Project Apollo and moon missions. . . . The book thoroughly covers the details of the lunar missions and describes how many key landmarks, such as launch pads and other facilities, may no longer exist because of damage and neglect.”—Choice “Raises an important question with potentially significant international implications.”—H-Net Across the American landscape and on the lunar surface, many facilities and landing sites linked to the Apollo program remain unprotected, some in ruins.

Fire Ecology of Florida and the Southeastern Coastal Plain REED F. NOSS “A thorough, current, and strongly focused summary of fire ecology and management in the southeastern U.S., sure to foster discussion and more thoughtful application of fire to this region’s diverse, pyrogenic landscapes.”—Eric Menges, senior research biologist, Archbold Biological Station “An engaging read. Noss weaves a deep synthesis of what is known about fire, its interaction with plants and animals, and how land management affects their shared future.”—J. Morgan Varner, research scientist, USDA Forest Service “Compiles and synthesizes information on the many fascinating aspects of fire ecology in Florida and the southeastern Coastal Plain.”—Jean Huffman, Louisiana State University A biodiversity hotspot, Florida is home to many ecosystems and species that depend on frequent fire to exist. In this book, Reed Noss discusses the essential role of fire in generating biodiversity and offers best practices for using fire to keep the region’s ecosystems healthy and resilient. Reviewing fossil evidence, Noss shows that fire has been important to the southeastern Coastal Plain for tens of millions of years. He explains how the region’s natural fire patterns are connected to its climate, high rate of lightning strikes, physical chemistry, and vegetation. But urbanization has recently reduced the frequency and range of these fires in profound ways. Noss believes the practice of controlled burns can and should be improved in order to protect fire-dependent species from extinction. Noss argues that fire managers should mimic the natural fire regimes of an area when conducting controlled burns. Based on what the species of the Southeast experienced during their evolutionary histories, he makes recommendations about pyrodiversity, how often and in what seasons to burn, the optimal heterogeneity of burns, mechanical treatments such as cutting and roller-chopping, and the proper use of fuel breaks. In doing so, Noss is the first to apply the new discipline of evolutionary fire ecology to a specific region. This book is a fascinating history of fire ecology in Florida, an enlightening look at why fire matters to the region, and a necessary resource for conservationists and fire managers in the state and surrounding areas.

Mitchem, editor of The West and Central Florida Expeditions of Clarence Bloomfield Moore This volume explores how native peoples of the Southeastern United States cooperated to form large and permanent early villages, using the site of Crystal River on Florida’s Gulf Coast as a case study. Crystal River was once among the most celebrated sites of the Woodland period (ca. 1000 BC to AD 1000), consisting of ten mounds and large numbers of diverse artifacts from the Hopewell culture. But a lack of research using contemporary methods at this site and nearby Roberts Island limited a full understanding of what these sites could tell scholars. Thomas Pluckhahn and Victor Thompson reanalyze previous excavations and conduct new field investigations to tell the whole story of Crystal River from its beginnings as a ceremonial center, through its growth into a large village, to its decline at the turn of the first millennium while Roberts Island and other nearby areas thrived. Comparing this community to similar sites on the Gulf Coast and in other areas of the world, Pluckhahn and Thompson argue that Crystal River is an example of an “early village society.” They illustrate that these early villages present important evidence in a larger debate regarding the role of competition versus cooperation in the development of human societies.

Early Human Life on the Southeastern Coastal Plain Edited by ALBERT C. GOODYEAR and CHRISTOPHER R. MOORE “Explores the current diversity of academic thought on the early human occupation of the American Southeast.”—Ervan Garrison, author of Techniques in Archaeological Geology “The early occupation of the Southeast for too long has been treated as essentially invariable and contributors to this volume address this with new methods and data.”—Philip J. Carr, coeditor of Contemporary Lithic Analysis in the Southeast: Problems, Solutions, and Interpretations Bringing together major archaeological research projects from Virginia to Alabama, this volume explores the rich prehistory of the Southeastern Coastal Plain. Beginning 50,000 years ago, contributors consider how the region’s warm weather, abundant water, and geography have long been optimal for the habitation of people. They highlight demographic changes and cultural connections across this wide span of time and space. New data are provided here for many sites, including evidence for human settlement before the Clovis period at the famous Topper site in South Carolina. Contributors track the progression of sea level rise that gradually submerged shorelines and landscapes, and they discuss the possibility of a comet collision that triggered the Younger Dryas cold reversion and contributed to the extinction of mammoths and mastodons. Essays also examine the various stone materials used by prehistoric foragers, the location of chert quarries, and the details stone tools reveal about social interaction and mobility. Addressing many controversial questions in the archaeology of the early Southeast, this volume adds new evidence to the ongoing discussions and debates. ALBERT C.

Edible Insects and Human Evolution
Children and Childhood in Bioarchaeology
JULIE J. LESNIK
Edited by PATRICK BEAUCHESNE and SABRINA C. AGARWAL
“An original and satisfying synthesis on the evolution of the human diet that draws from all the relevant fields of the natural and social sciences.”—W. C. McGrew, author of The Cultured Chimpanzee: Reflections on Cultural Primatology “Engaging. Argues most convincingly that insects were an important food source during human evolution.”—Margaret J. Schoeninger, University of California San Diego Researchers who study ancient human diets tend to focus on meat eating, since the practice of butchery is very apparent in the archaeological record. In this volume, Julie Lesnik brings a different food source into view, tracing evidence that humans and their hominin ancestors also consumed insects throughout the entire course of human evolution. Lesnik investigates the role of insects in the diets of hunter-gatherers and our nonhuman primate cousins in order to deduce what insect consumption looked like in the past. She approaches the question from the perspectives of primatology, sociocultural anthropology, reproductive physiology, and paleoanthropology. Lesnik posits that women would likely spend more time foraging for and eating insects than men, arguing that this pattern is important to note because women are too often ignored in reconstructions of ancient human behavior. Because of the abundance of insects and the low risk of acquiring them, insects were a reliable food source that mothers used to feed their families over the past five million years. Although they are consumed worldwide to this day, insects are not usually considered to be food in Western societies. Tying together ancient history with our modern lives, Lesnik points out that insects are a highly nutritious and very sustainable food. Lesnik believes that if we accept that edible insects are a part of the human legacy, we may have new conversations about what is good to eat—both in past diets and for the future of food.
“Heralds a new direction in bioarchaeological research, showcasing a diverse array of studies from across the world which emphasize the importance of multidisciplinary analysis when seeking to understand the lives of past children.”—Rebecca C. Redfern, author of Injury and Trauma in Bioarchaeology: Interpreting Violence in Past Lives “Impressive and refreshing. Incorporates a diversity of contributions that provide novel or updated methodological and theoretical approaches and concepts under a biocultural and life course perspective.” —Hugo Cardoso, Simon Fraser University As researchers become increasingly interested in studying the lives of children in antiquity, this volume argues for the importance of a collaborative biocultural approach. Contributors draw on fields including skeletal biology and physiology, archaeology, sociocultural anthropology, pediatrics, and psychology to show that a diversity of research methods is the best way to illuminate the complexities of childhood. Contributors and case studies span the globe with locations including Egypt, Turkey, Italy, England, Japan, Peru, Bolivia, Canada, and the United States. Time periods range from the Neolithic to the Industrial Revolution. Leading experts in the bioarchaeology of childhood investigate breastfeeding and weaning trends of the past 10,000 years; mortuary data from child burials; skeletal trauma and stress events; bone size, shape, and growth; plasticity; and dietary histories. Emphasizing a life course approach and developmental perspective, this volume’s interdisciplinary nature marks a paradigm shift in the way children of the past are studied. It points the way forward to a better understanding of childhood as a dynamic lived experience both physically and socially.

Water, Cacao, and the Early Maya of Chocolá
Pathways to Complexity
JONATHAN KAPLAN and FEDERICO PAREDES UMAÑA
Edited by M. KATHRYN BROWN and GEORGE J. BEY III
“The site of Chocolá is extremely important for the study of the rise and development of civilization in southern Mesoamerica. This book represents the first systematic description and analysis of this center and is a significant contribution to Mesoamerican archaeology.” —Takeshi Inomata, coeditor of Mesoamerican Plazas: Arenas of Community and Power
“A treasure trove of new information and fresh ideas about the origins of Maya civilization. Pathways to Complexity will help set the agenda for investigation of ancient Maya origins for many years to come.”—Christopher A. Pool, author of Olmec Archaeology and Early Mesoamerica
“Kaplan and Paredes Umaña leave no stone unturned in the analysis of the relationships between resources, production, and power at Chocolá. Mandatory reading for anyone interested in the early Maya kingdoms of southeastern Mesoamerica.”—William R. Fowler, Jr., author of The Cultural Evolution of Ancient Nahua Civilizations: The PipilNicarao of Central America This exciting book brings the often-overlooked southern Maya region of Guatemala into the spotlight by closely examining the “lost city” of Chocolá. Jonathan Kaplan and Federico Paredes Umaña prove that Chocolá was a major Maya polity and reveal exactly why it was so influential. In their fieldwork at the site, Kaplan and Paredes Umaña discovered an extraordinarily sophisticated underground water-control system. They also discovered cacao residues in ceramic vessels. Based on these and other findings, the authors believe that cacao was consumed and grown intensively at Chocolá and that the city was the center of a large cacao trade. They contend that the city’s wealth and power were built on its abundant supply of water and its command of cacao, which was significant not just to cuisine and trade but also to Maya ideology and cosmology. Moreover, Kaplan and Paredes Umaña detail the ancient city’s ceramics and add over thirty stone sculptures to the site’s inventory. Because the southern Maya region was likely the origin of Maya hieroglyphic writing and the Long Count calendar, scholars have long suspected the area to be important. This pioneering field research at Chocolá helps explain how and why the region played a leading role in the rise of the Maya civilization. JONATHAN KAPLAN, director of the Chocolá Project, is coeditor of The Southern Maya in the Late Preclassic: The Rise and Fall of an Early Mesoamerican Civilization.

A View from the Maya Lowlands
“An exciting volume with new discoveries, surprising evidence, bold interpretations, and much internal debate.”—Arthur A. Demarest, Ingram Chair in Anthropology, Vanderbilt University Pathways to Complexity synthesizes a wealth of new archaeological data to illuminate the origins of Maya civilization and the rise of Classic Maya culture. In this volume, prominent Maya scholars argue that the development of social, religious, and economic complexity began during the Middle Preclassic period (1000–300 BC), hundreds of years earlier than previously thought. Contributors reveal that villages were present in parts of the lowlands by 1000 BC. Combining recent discoveries from the northern lowlands—an area often neglected in other volumes—and the southern lowlands, the collection then traces the emergence of sociopolitical inequality and complexity in all parts of the Yucatán Peninsula over the course of the Middle Preclassic period. They show that communities evolved in different ways due to influences such as geographical location, ceramic exchange, shell ornament production, agricultural strategy, religious ritual, ideology, and social rankings. These varied pathways to complexity developed over half a millennium and culminated in the institution of kingship by the Late Preclassic period. Presenting exciting work on a dynamic and misunderstood time period, Pathways to Complexity demonstrates the importance of a broad, comparative approach to understanding Preclassic Maya civilization and will serve as a foundation for future research and interpretation.

Modeling Cross-Cultural Interaction in Ancient Borderlands Edited by ULRIKE MATTHIES GREEN and KIRK E. COSTION “This elegantly simple model is an innovative approach to visualizing interregional interaction in the ancient world. An original and significant contribution.”—Bradley J. Parker, coeditor of New Perspectives on Household Archaeology “A most welcome contribution to the study of relationships between sociocultural units. I look forward to seeing this model used by archaeologists worldwide.”—Patricia A. Urban, coeditor of Resources, Power, and Interregional Interaction This volume introduces the Cross-Cultural Interaction Model (CCIM), a visual tool for studying the exchanges that take place between different cultures in borderland areas or across long distances. The model helps researchers untangle complex webs of connections among people, landscapes, and artifacts, and can be used to support multiple theoretical viewpoints. Through case studies, contributors apply the CCIM to various regions and time periods, including Roman Europe, the Greek province of Thessaly in the Late Bronze Age, the ancient Egyptian-Nubian frontier, colonial Greenland in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Mississippian realm of Cahokia, ancient Costa Rica and Panama, and the Moquegua Valley of Peru in the early Middle Horizon period. They adapt the model to best represent their data, successfully plotting connections in many different dimensions, including geography, material culture, religion and spirituality, and ideology. The model enables them to expose what motivates people to participate in cultural exchange, as well as the influences that people reject in these interactions. These results demonstrate the versatility and analytical power of the CCIM. Bridging the gap between theory and data, this tool can prompt users to rethink previous interpretations of their research, leading to new ideas, new theories, and new directions for future study.

British Forts and Their Communities Archaeological and Historical Perspectives
Edited by CHRISTOPHER R. DECORSE and ZACHARY J. M. BEIER “A fresh approach to far-flung British forts that unravels the diverse ethnicities of each fort’s garrison and support community, thereby revealing the complex and imperfect ways British imperialists imposed colonialism across the globe.”—Gregory A. Waselkov, author of A Conquering Spirit: Fort Mims and the Redstick War of 1813–1814 While the military features of historic forts usually receive the most attention from researchers, this volume focuses instead on the people who met and interacted in these sites. Contributors to British Forts and Their Communities look beyond the defensive architecture, physical landscapes, and armed conflicts to explore the complex social diversity that arose in the outposts of the British Empire. The forts investigated here operated at the empire’s peak in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries, protecting British colonial settlements and trading enclaves scattered across the globe. Locations in this volume include New York state, Michigan, the St. Lawrence River, and Vancouver, as well as sites in the Caribbean and in Africa. Using archaeological and archival evidence, these case studies show how forts brought together people of many different origins, ethnicities, identities, and social roles, from European soldiers to indigenous traders to African slaves. Characterized by shifting networks of people, commodities, and ideas, these fort populations were microcosms of the emerging modern world. This volume reveals how important it is to move past the conventional emphasis on the armed might of the colonizer in order to better understand the messy, entangled nature of British colonialism and the new era it helped usher in.

BEIER is assistant lecturer in the department of history and archaeology at the University of the West Indies at Mona, Jamaica.

Mestizo Modernity Race, Technology, and the Body in Post-Revolutionary Mexico
DAVID S. DALTON “A rich and compelling history of race in Mexico from an important new voice in Mexican cultural criticism.”—Rebecca Janzen, author of The National Body in Mexican Literature: Collective Challenges to Biopolitical Control “This excellent study illuminates the construction and understanding of race, identity, and modernity in post-revolutionary Mexico from Vasconcelos’s ‘The Cosmic Race’ to the Mexploitation cinema of El Santo and from the murals of Rivera and Orozco to 1960s onda science fiction.”—Rachel Haywood Ferreira, author of The Emergence of Latin American Science Fiction After the end of the Mexican Revolution in 1917, post-revolutionary leaders hoped to assimilate the country’s racially diverse population into one official mixed-race identity—the mestizo. This book shows that as part of this vision, the Mexican government believed it could modernize “primitive” indigenous peoples through technology in the form of education, modern medicine, industrial agriculture, and factory work. David Dalton takes a close look at how authors, artists, and thinkers—some state-funded, some independent—engaged with official views of Mexican racial identity from the 1920s to the 1970s. Dalton surveys essays, plays, novels, murals, and films that portray indigenous bodies being fused, or hybridized, with technology. He examines José Vasconcelos’s essay “The Cosmic Race” and the influence of its ideologies on mural artists such as Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco. He discusses the theme of introducing Amerindians to medical hygiene and immunizations in the films of Emilio “El Indio” Fernández. He analyzes the portrayal of indigenous monsters in the films of El Santo, as well as Carlos Olvera’s critique of postrevolutionary worldviews in the novel Mejicanos en el espacio. Incorporating the perspectives of posthumanism and cyborg studies, Dalton shows that technology played a key role in race formation in Mexico throughout the twentieth century. This cutting-edge study offers fascinating new insights into the culture of mestizaje, illuminating the attitudes that inform Mexican race relations in the present day. DAVID S.

Migrants and Political Change in Latin America LUIS F. JIMÉNEZ “Jiménez uses a sophisticated mixed-methods approach to grapple with the question of how much migrants change the politics of their home countries. The combination of quantitative analysis and fieldwork in three countries makes it a worthy contribution to the literature.”—Gregory B. Weeks, author of U.S. and Latin American Relations, 2nd Edition “Jam-packed with new theoretical insights and original data.”—Efrén O. Pérez, author of Unspoken Politics This book reveals how migrants shape the politics of their countries of origin, drawing on research from Mexico, Colombia, and Ecuador and their diasporas, the three largest in Latin America. Luis Jiménez discusses the political changes that result when migrants return to their native countries in person and also when they send back new ideas and funds—social and economic “remittances”—through transnational networks. Using a combination of rich quantitative analysis and eye-opening interviews, Jiménez finds that migrants have influenced areas such as political participation, number of parties, electoral competitiveness, and presidential election results. Interviews with authorities in Mexico reveal that migrants have inspired a demand for increased government accountability. Surveys from Colombia show that neighborhoods that have seen high degrees of migration are more likely to participate in local politics and also vote for a wider range of parties at the national level. In Ecuador, he observes that migration is linked to more competitive local elections as well as less support for representatives whose policies censor the media. Jiménez also draws attention to government services that would not exist without the influence of migrants. Looking at the demographics of these migrating populations along with the size and density of their social networks, Jiménez identifies the circumstances in which other diasporas—such as those of south Asian and African countries—have the most potential to impact the politics of their homelands. LUIS F. JIMÉNEZ is assistant professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Detain and Punish
Haitian Refugees and the Rise of the World’s Largest Immigration Detention System
New Directions in Haitian and Dominican Studies
CARL LINDSKOOG “Shows how systems, policies, and even detention centers that were designed for Haitian refugees grew insidiously over the decades into a more and more encompassing immigrant detention system.” —Aviva Chomsky, author of Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal “Forcefully demonstrates how the case of Haitian refugee detention became the basis for America’s inhumane response to refugees arriving directly on its shores.”—Alex Stepick, author of Pride against Prejudice: Haitians in the United States Immigrants make up the largest proportion of federal prisoners in the United States, incarcerated in a vast network of more than two hundred detention facilities. This book investigates when detention became a centerpiece of U.S. immigration policy. Detain and Punish reveals why the practice was reinstituted in 1981 after being halted for several decades and how the system expanded to become the world’s largest immigration detention regime. The story begins with an influx of Haitian migrants and asylum seekers in the 1970s. The U.S. government responded with exclusionary policies and detention, setting a precedent for future waves of immigration. Carl Lindskoog details the discrimination Haitian refugees faced, and how their resistance to this treatment—in the form of legal action and activism—prompted the government to reinforce its detention program and create an even larger system of facilities. Lindskoog draws on extensive archival research, including government documents, advocacy group archives, and periodicals, to provide the first in-depth history of Haitians and immigration detention in the United States. Lindskoog asserts that systems designed for Haitian refugees laid the groundwork for the way immigrants to America are treated today. Detain and Punish provides essential historical context for the challenges faced by today’s immigrant groups, which are some of the most critical issues of our time. CARL LINDSKOOG is assistant professor of history at Raritan Valley Community College.
Edited by APRIL J. MAYES and KIRAN C. JAYARAM “Highly original and richly researched, this volume challenges many of the bedrock assumptions in Dominican and Haitian nationalist and statist thought, filling important gaps in the literature on the island in English.”—Lauren Derby, coeditor of Activating the Past In addition to sharing the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, Haiti and the Dominican Republic share a complicated and at times painful history. Yet Transnational Hispaniola shows that there is much more to the two nations’ relationship than their perceived antagonism. Rejecting dominant narratives that reinforce opposition between the two sides of the island, contributors to this volume highlight the connections and commonalities that extend across the border, mapping new directions in Haitianist and Dominicanist scholarship. Exploring a variety of topics including European colonialism, migration, citizenship, sex tourism, music, literature, and art, contributors demonstrate that alternate views of Haitian and Dominican history and identity have existed long before the present day. From a moving section on passport petitions that reveals the familial, friendship, and communal networks across Hispaniola in the nineteenth century to a discussion of the shared music traditions that unite the island today, this volume speaks of an island and people bound together in a myriad of ways. Complete with reflections and advice on teaching a transnational approach to Haitian and Dominican studies, this agenda-setting volume argues that the island of Hispaniola and its inhabitants should be studied in a way that contextualizes differences, historicizes borders, and recognizes cross-island links.

Queering the Redneck Riviera
Reconsidering Southern Labor History
Sexuality and the Rise of Florida Tourism
Race, Class, and Power
JERRY T. WATKINS III
Edited by MATTHEW HILD and KERI LEIGH MERRITT
“A fascinating look at queer life in the Florida Panhandle.”—Stacy Braukman, author of Communists and Perverts Under the Palms
“This collection impresses with its chronological sweep, diverse subject matter, and fresh perspectives on southern labor history. It not only affirms the relevance of the southern working-class experience but also enhances our understanding of the broader contours of labor and working-class history.”—Robert Bussel, author of Fighting for Total Person Unionism
“Watkins shows that the queer culture that emerged on Florida’s ‘Redneck Riviera’ was unique— a fierce (and often fraught) manifestation of regional boosterism, Cold War militarism, and competing claims over the meaning of ‘community.’ A significant contribution to our understanding of the history of lesbian and gay experience in the United States.”—Colin R. Johnson, author of Just Queer Folks Queering the Redneck Riviera recovers the forgotten and erased history of gay men and lesbians in north Florida, a region that has been overlooked in the story of the LGBTQ experience in the United States. Jerry Watkins reveals both the challenges these men and women faced in the years following World War II and the essential role they played in making the Emerald Coast a major tourist destination. In a state dedicated to selling an image of itself as a “family-friendly” tropical paradise, and in an era of increasing moral panic and repression, queer people were forced to renegotiate their identities and their places in society. Watkins re-creates queer life during this period, drawing from sources including newspaper articles, advertising and public relations campaigns, oral history accounts, government documents, and interrogation transcripts from the state’s Johns Committee. He discovers that postwar improvements in transportation infrastructure made it easier for queer people to reach safe spaces to socialize. He uncovers stories of gay and lesbian beach parties, bars, and friendship networks that spanned the South. The book also includes rare photos from the Emma Jones Society, a Pensacola-based group that boldly hosted gatherings and conventions in public places. Illuminating a community that boosted Florida’s emerging tourist economy and helped establish a visible LGBTQ presence in the Sunshine State, Watkins offers new insights about the relationships between sexuality, capitalism, and conservative morality in the second half of the twentieth century. JERRY T. WATKINS III is visiting assistant professor of history at the College of William & Mary.
“An outstanding collection of essays that promises to help solve America’s labor history illiteracy problem and that offers much to learn about the history of capitalism, management, labor, and the struggles of ordinary people in the South.”—Chad Pearson, coeditor of Against Labor The American Dream of reaching success through sheer sweat and determination rings false for countless members of today’s working class. This volume shows that many of the difficulties facing modern laborers have deep roots in the history of worker exploitation in the South. Contributors make the case that the problems that have long beset southern labor, including the legacy of slavery, low wages, lack of collective bargaining rights, and repression of organized unions, have become the problems of workers across the United States. Spanning nearly all of U.S. history, from the eighteenth century to the present, the essays in this collection range from West Virginia to Florida to Texas. They examine such topics as vagrancy laws in the Early Republic, inmate labor at state penitentiaries, mine workers and union membership, pesticide exposure among farmworkers, labor activism during the civil rights movement, and foreign-owned auto factories in the rural South. They distinguish between different struggles experienced by women and men, as well as by African American, Latino, and white workers. The broad chronological sweep and comprehensive nature of Reconsidering Southern Labor History set this volume apart from any other collection on the topic in the past forty years. Presenting the latest trends in the study of the working-class South by a new generation of scholars, this volume is a surprising revelation of the historical forces behind the labor inequalities inherent today.

Sacraments of Memory Catholicism and Slavery in Contemporary African American Literature
ERIN MICHAEL SALIUS “An excellent model of the research and critical analyses that ought to inform future scholarship in African American literature and culture.” —Jerry W. Ward Jr., coeditor of The Cambridge History of African American Literature “Brilliant and insightful. Fills a gap in the study of African American literature and religion, which has traditionally assumed a Protestant theological and cultural landscape as the ground for discussions of religion and spirituality among the enslaved. Adds to our knowledge of how religious tropes, archetypes, and theological claims inform readings of African American literary texts.”—Katherine Clay Bassard, editor of “Sketches of Slave Life” and “From Slave Cabin to the Pulpit” “A fresh, insightful reading of the African American neo-slave narrative genre. Promises to revise our understanding of not only the religious ideologies that justified slavery but also the narratives through which African Americans continue to engage America’s traumatic history and envision their own redemptive salvation.”—Sheldon George, author of Trauma and Race: A Lacanian Study of African American Racial Identity Sacraments of Memory is the first book to focus on Catholic themes and imagery in African American literature. Erin Michael Salius discovers striking elements of the religion in neo-slave narratives written by Toni Morrison, Ernest Gaines, Leon Forrest, Phyllis Alesia Perry, Charles R. Johnson, and Edward P. Jones. Examining the emergence of this major literary genre amidst the Black Power and civil rights movements, Salius uncovers the presence of Catholic rituals and mysteries—including references to the Eucharist, Augustinian theology, spirit possession, and stigmata—alongside and in tension with these texts’ criticisms of the Church’s political and social policies. Her analyses include a nuanced reading of Beloved that interprets the novel in light of Toni Morrison’s affiliation with the religion. Salius argues that Morrison and the other novelists in this study draw on a Catholic counter-tradition in American literature that resists Enlightenment rationality. These authors use this tradition to challenge the historical realism of past slave autobiographies and the conventional story of American slavery. Ultimately, Salius contends that Catholicism enables these novelists to imagine and express radically different ways of remembering the past. ERIN MICHAEL SALIUS is associate director of Summer Term at Boston University.
Virginia Woolf, the War Without, the War Within Her Final Diaries and the Diaries She Read
BARBARA LOUNSBERRY “Lounsberry establishes how central to Woolf’s personal and creative being was diary-writing.” —Panthea Reid, author of Art and Affection: A Life of Virginia Woolf “A tour de force. Insightfully retraces Woolf’s movement from joyful confidence to restless struggles, persuasively illustrates the antiwar nature of all of Woolf’s work during the 1930s, and movingly interprets Woolf’s last diary entry.”—Beth Rigel Daugherty, coeditor of Approaches to Teaching Woolf’s “To the Lighthouse” In her third and final volume on Virginia Woolf’s diaries, Barbara Lounsberry reveals new insights about the courageous last years of the modernist writer’s life, from 1929 until Woolf’s suicide in 1941. Woolf turned more to her diary—and to the diaries of others—for support in these years as she engaged in inner artistic wars, including the struggle with her most difficult work, The Waves, and as the threat of fascism in the world outside culminated in World War II. During this period, the war began to bleed into Woolf’s diary entries. Woolf writes about Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin; copies down the headlines of the day; and captures how war changed her daily life. Alongside Woolf’s own entries, Lounsberry explores the diaries of 18 other writers as Woolf read them, including the diaries of Leo Tolstoy, Dorothy Wordsworth, Guy de Maupassant, Alice James, and André Gide. Lounsberry shows how reading diaries was both respite from Woolf’s public writing and also an inspiration for it. Tellingly, shortly before her suicide Woolf had stopped reading them completely. The outer war and Woolf’s inner life collide in this dramatic conclusion to the trilogy that resoundingly demonstrates why Virginia Woolf has been called “the Shakespeare of the diary.” Lounsberry’s masterful study is essential reading for a complete understanding of this extraordinary writer and thinker and the development of modernist literature. BARBARA LOUNSBERRY is professor emerita of English at the University of Northern Iowa. She is the author of Becoming Virginia Woolf: Her Early Diaries and the Diaries She Read and Virginia Woolf’s Modernist Path: Her Middle Diaries and the Diaries She Read.

Joyce and the Crisis of the Modern University
A Reader’s Companion to James Joyce’s Ulysses
SEBASTIAN D. G. KNOWLES
“Offers an array of insights, observations, and intuitions, and is bursting at the seams with one smart idea or curious fact after another.” —John Gordon, author of Joyce and Reality: The Empirical Strikes Back “Witty and perceptive considerations of Joyce’s works via the prevailing metaphor of the centrifuge. Joyce’s works similarly reveal a wide range of backgrounds and influences, and their impact and interpretation have radiated outward throughout the modern era.”—Thomas Jackson Rice, author of Cannibal Joyce At Fault is an exhilarating celebration of risk-taking in the work of James Joyce. Esteemed Joyce scholar and teacher Sebastian Knowles takes on the American university system, arguing that the modernist writer offers the antidote to the risk-averse attitudes that are increasingly constraining institutions of higher education today. Knowles shows how Joyce’s work connects with research, teaching, and service, the three primary functions of the academic enterprise. He demonstrates that Joyce’s texts continually push beyond themselves, resisting the end, defying delimitation. The characters in these texts also move outward—in a centrifugal pattern—looking for escape. Knowles further highlights the expansiveness of Joyce’s world by undertaking topics as diverse as the symbol of Jumbo the elephant, the meaning of the gramophone, live music performance in the “Sirens” episode of Ulysses, the neurology of humor, and inventive ways of teaching Finnegans Wake. Contending that error is the central theme in all of Joyce’s work, Knowles argues that the freedom to challenge boundaries and make mistakes is essential to the university environment. Energetic and delightfully erudite, Knowles inspires readers with the infinite possibilities of human thought exemplified by Joyce’s writing. SEBASTIAN D. G. KNOWLES is professor of English at The Ohio State University. He is the author of several books, including The Dublin Helix: The Life of Language in Joyce’s “Ulysses.” A volume in the Florida James Joyce Series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles
An essential resource for the Joycean classroom “Easily the best companion to Ulysses for first-time readers and seasoned scholars alike. Killeen brings in multiple levels of expertise: he has a fantastic knowledge of Joyce, of Ulysses, of Dublin, and of Joyce criticism. He writes with clarity, expertise, and affection.” —Sam Slote, coeditor of Renascent Joyce Ideal for readers new to Ulysses and written with a depth of knowledge that scholars have found invaluable, “Ulysses” Unbound is a clear and comprehensive guide to James Joyce’s masterpiece from one of the foremost Dublin-based Joyce experts. Terence Killeen discusses the novel’s eighteen episodes individually. For each episode, Killeen provides a brief narrative summary along with an account of the corresponding parts of Homer’s Odyssey. He also analyzes the unique style of every episode, in recognition of the novel’s remarkable stylistic diversity. Broader commentary sections look at each episode’s principal themes and function within the context of the overall development of the work. Annotations help explain some of the main characters and historical events in the book, illuminating the real people who provided so much of the book’s material. Glossaries define many of the foreign language terms that pepper the text. This guide also features an overall reading of Ulysses, a brief account of Joyce’s life, and a description of the novel’s eventful textual and publishing history. Accessible and authoritative, “Ulysses” Unbound is an indispensable companion for both students and specialists. TERENCE KILLEEN is research scholar at the James Joyce Centre in Dublin. He is also a journalist with the Irish Times. A volume in the Florida James Joyce Series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles

Edited by CARMEN DIANA DEERE and FREDERICK S. ROYCE “Timely and useful. . . . A good introduction to many of the key issues and movements in contemporary rural Latin America.”—Bulletin of Latin American Research “A true wealth of perspectives and case studies. . . . By analyzing the various ways in which these movements articulate local and global networks, advocate for gender and ethnic rights, and insist on environmental and economic justice, this collection makes a compelling case that these movements provide coherent and dedicated leadership toward creating more equitable and sustainable societies.”—The Americas “Gives a clear picture of present-day rurality and the struggles to build a better future for rural populations, including concerns high on the international agenda such as food and environmental sustainability.”—Feminist Economics CARMEN DIANA DEERE, former director of the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida and former president of the Latin American Studies Association, is the coauthor of Empowering Women: Land and Property Rights in Latin America.

EDWARD L. CLEARY “An encompassing overview of one of the most important yet understudied religious trends in contemporary Latin America. . . . An excellent introduction to the Charismatic renewal.”—Latin American Politics and Society “Reveals a powerful and multifarious phenomenon whose demographic size and importance has been underestimated.”—Journal of Contemporary Religion “A rich historical account. . . . [A] wealth of information.”—Journal of Latin American Studies “The book is impressive in its breadth and depth; it is the product of Cleary’s more than fifty years studying the U.S. origins of the Catholic Charismatic movement and its explosion throughout Latin America.” —Church History “[Cleary] has . . . proven to be one of the most prolific and astute observers of religions in Latin America over the past half-century.” —Journal of Church and State “This book is an example of [Cleary’s] thorough expertise in the area. He takes us through country after country in Latin America documenting the rise of Charismatic Catholicism and its relation to Pentecostalism and other indigenous movements.”—Missiology “A must-read.”—Religious Studies Review EDWARD L. CLEARY (1929–2011) was professor of political science and Latin American studies at Providence College. His many books include Conversion of a Continent: Contemporary Religious Change in Latin America.
PATRICK FRANK “Brings long overdue recognition and reevaluation to Nueva Figuración. Offers a contemporary re-examination of the artworks beyond that of Argentina’s complex political history for a more global interpretation.” —Carol Damian, author of Neorealism and Contemporary Colombian Painting “Chronicles an important and little-known episode in the history of Argentine art and thoughtfully locates the movement within the complex cultural and political landscape of its time.”—Abigail McEwen, University of Maryland, College Park Although it is one of Latin America’s most significant postwar art movements, Nueva Figuración has long been overlooked in studies of modern art. In this first comprehensive examination of the movement, Patrick Frank explores the work of four artists at its heart— Jorge de la Vega, Luis Felipe Noé, Rómulo Macció, and Ernesto Deira—to demonstrate the importance of their work in the transnational development of modern art. These painters broke new ground in Latin American art, not only in their technique, but also in the way they engaged the social, political, and cultural climate in an Argentina still recovering from the Perón years. Their works exercised a creative freedom that broke taboos about the role of the artist in society. PATRICK FRANK is the author of several books, including Los Artistas del Pueblo: Prints and Workers’ Culture in Buenos Aires, 1917–1935 and Posada’s Broadsheets: Mexican Popular Imagery, 1890–1910.

Creating Citizenship in the NineteenthCentury South
African American Ethics from Slavery to Freedom
“Demonstrates that the ‘emancipation generation’ bequeathed values, ethical frameworks, and identities to multiple ensuing generations, shaping religious, educational, and cultural institutions as well as labor and political organizations.”—Peter Rachleff, editor of Starving Amidst Too Much and Other IWW Writings on the Food Industry “Shows how far off the mark arguments are that claim that black Americans generally have internalized inferiority and engage in self-defeating behaviors.”—William A. Darity Jr., coeditor of Boundaries of Clan and Color: Transnational Comparisons of Inter-Group Disparity In Known for My Work, Lynda Morgan examines African American social and intellectual thought to highlight how slaves built an ethos of “honest labor” and collective humanism— a moral legacy that their descendants share as a foundation for citizenship and participation in democracy. From the late antebellum era through the reparations movement of the twenty-first century, this book offers an unprecedented view of African America. LYNDA J.

Make the dressing: Combine all the dressing ingredients and whisk with a fork until fully incorporated and slightly thickened.
Make the salad: Fill a bowl with cold water and swish the watercress in the water to rinse it. Drain well. Cut the watercress, stems included, into 1-inch pieces and put them in a large bowl. Supreme the orange (cut off all the peel and the surrounding membrane of each segment), then cut the orange segments into ½-inch pieces, discarding the seeds and adding the pieces to the bowl with the watercress. Cut the avocados into ½-inch pieces and add them to the bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well. Sprinkle with the toasted walnuts and finish with some black pepper. Serve immediately.
